Cali (real name: Bruno Caliciuri) is a French singer-songwriter. Cali was born 28 June 1968 in Vernet-les-Bains near Perpignan, to an Italian mother and Catalan father. A fan of English rock and French chanson during his youth, Cali was also a keen rugby player. He played for his region and Perpignan (USAP). Inspired by a U2 concert in 1984, Cali devoted himself more to music and less to rugby.
